Ten Things of Thankful


  • Organized my files and got paperwork ready for tax appointment next week. Just have some paper shredding to do but the real work is done.
  • Finished the crocheted baby blanket for my friend whose baby boy is due this month.
  • Had a lovely morning with my friend. She had some shopping to do and I went along and did some shopping myself. Then we had lunch. While at lunch she got a call that her son and his soon to be wife had their offer on a house accepted. Great joy!
  • A neighbor was taken to the hospital by ambulance yesterday. I saw her as they were wheeling her into the elevator. She is in her late nineties and as feisty as ever. No news yet as to how she is doing. I am thankful for the EMS folks. They do a much- needed service and deserve our gratitude and support.
  • Had some good feedback on my writing at my other blog, Day of Grace. This blog Patricia’s Place is where I just talk and have fun. Sometimes there is serious stuff here but for the most part, it’s easy. Day of Grace is my heart and takes a lot of thought and prayer. I need to be more circumspect and thoughtful there. I want to be an encouragement and not preachy.
  • I have been asked to serve on a committee here where I live. I haven’t said yes or no. I need to give it some thought but I am humbled that I have been asked and thankful that I am considered worthy.
  • I am ever so thankful that my arthritis pain does not flare up very often and when it does it responds to aspirin quite nicely. No other pain medication is needed.
  • I have plans for dinner with a friend this coming week. She is a work friend and I haven’t seen her since December. It will be great to see her and catch up with the last couple of months.
  • We had snow flurries this morning. It was beautiful! There is a sweet peacefulness looking out the window of my nice warm home and watching the snowflakes float from the sky. I am thankful for the sight today and thankful that it’s a sight we don’t see too often.
  • I received a reimbursement check from the insurance company. This is a great blessing because it will cover the handyman work being done this month. I had been complaining about the delay but as often happens the delay brought the blessing at the perfect time. God is good!

Ten Things of Thankful


  1. Got two things crossed off that have been on my to-do list for way too long. Of course, it is a never ending list but still feels good to take something off before putting something new on it and I am thankful.
  2. New sofa and bed delivered. The bed is in the guest room and will be a cozy nest when I have overnight visitors. The sofa is so comfortable. The catkids and I are enjoying it.
  3. Because the old sofa was not in bad shape I was able to give it to someone who needed a sofa.
  4. Had a text from someone I used to work with. We are going to get together for lunch or supper sometime this month. Friends are great blessings.
  5. I know how to make a decent meal and have enough to share.
  6. I have money to pay bills and a little left over for fun. Cannot express how wonderful that is.
  7. I spent an hour or so straightening up the library downstairs. Someone had put a box of books on the table that needed to have a home and some old books that needed to find a new home. The new are all shelved and the old ready to go to the public library for the Spring sale.
  8. I am loving the unrushed unscripted days I have now that are on my time-table. No more need to set the alarm or too little sleep for this night owl.
  9. I have a home that is perfect for me. It is a quiet sanctuary where I am safe and happy.
  10. Looking forward to next week no matter what it brings with it. It is with a sense of wonder I write that. All is well with my soul!
